Final Review for this box: iSOi’s Bulgarian Rose Pore Tightening Tonic Essence

I’m feeling a tinge of sadness as this is my last item from my most recent BNTnews beautybox, but I’m pretty excited to tell you guys about it.

Plus I get to go back to all my beauty reviews coming soon, look forward to a blush tutorial and fall look soon!

Anyways, today I’m reviewing one of my most favorite brands that I’ve received as a BNTgirl, iSOi which stands for “I’m SO intelligent.” I love their Bulgarian Rose based brand, it’s natural and beautiful.  See my past review of their blemish care serum here.



I was excited because this was a multi-care product, not only does it reduce the appearance of your pores it also helps control sebum (oil and moisture control) and remove dead skin cells (exfoliation, woo).

The product is a multi-tasker, it’s a toner and an essence. With all this skin care hype nowadays  and multi-product routines required for it, a 2-in-1 product cuts time efficiently.

Using this product is easy, like any regular toner, wet a cotton ball and just wipe evenly across your face.

Ta-da! Finished, your face is left feeling refreshed and moisturized!

It leaves that same rose-y scent on your face that the serum gave me plus and nice cooling sensation as if a weight has been lifted off your face.

Not to mention in comes in the beautiful glass containers that all iSOi products come in. Nice sturdy glass that feels cool against you skin.

Using this product for a week, I think I’ve actually noticed my pores getting smaller than what they were before. So that’s nice, their logo “make your pore skinny” works.

I just love the scent, the feel and of course the container. I’m a fan of nice glass containers. Mason jars what what.

Overall I find this quite a wonderful product, yay more multitasking products, lazy girl skin care 101.

I give this bottle of rose-y love a 9/10 on my scale of awesome.

You can find it here for $34.24, totally worth the money to me.

This product was given to me to review as a BNTgirl but has a 100% my thoughts in it ❤

Review: Faith in Face Truly Waterly Cleansing Water

Hello everyone! I’m back again after my 1 month-ish hiatus, I’ve been traveling ( west coast, So Cal to be specific yayay!) Look forward to a brief video on my travels and snipbits of what my cali life was like in future posts.

But for now that I’m back and here to review one of the more awesome-er products that I got in my new BNTbeauty box!


I’ll be reviewing Truly Waterly Cleansing Water by Faith in Face a Korean company that was established in 2009 and focuses on more natural beauty. A brand better known for their amazing facial masks!

Their pink and retro packaging immediately caught my eye because of their similarity to the UK brand, Soap and Glory. But what really impressed me wasn’t their cute packaging but the actual product itself.

It’s a toner AND a make up remover that claimed to even remove waterproof make up. As a lazy girl 50% of the time I love the idea of the 2-in-1 product and I was ready to put it to the test.

In the photos I’m wearing:

  • Stila’s – Stay All Day Waterproof liquid Eyeliner (personal favorite for all day stay with zero smudging)
  • The Balm’s – Nudetude palette for a soft brown smokey eye
  • Benefit’s – They’re Real! Mascara
  • Laura Mercier’s – Caviar Stick in Seashell

So for my test I’m wearing a pretty solid everyday eye look featuring one of the best if not the best waterproof, smudge-proof eyeliners I’ve ever used. Let the testing begin.

Needless to really say, I’m very VERY impressed with this product. SO PLEASED.

The 2-in-1 product removed all my eye make up without smudging, irritation, and without any effort. I’m a convert.

It has a light scent, very faint and is as the bottle says, watery. Perfect refreshing non-greasy after feel.

I used to regularly use Lancome’s Bi-Facil Eye Make Up Remover (4.2oz, $28) because I couldn’t use anything else to get rid of all my more stubborn make up but now Faith in Face’s Truly Waterly Cleansing Water has completely changed my daily cleansing routine.

It has made my routine faster (yay, 2-in-1 products!), and as a bonus, cheaper. Which is nice.


I’m giving this product a 10/10 on the Doris scale.

I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone looking for a new cleanser.

You can find this magical product on Yesstyle for $17.90 (10.14oz).
